Here are some pics on how I started my project, basically I purchased styrene sheets braced them together and got a rectangle. I found a website that sold plastic mirror mosaics that I used as windows.

 

Secondly I decided that I wanted another level to my hotel "The Golden Buddha", so I did the same as above but instead of 4 sides I did three sides and had my triangle.

 

The hardest part of this project was adding the lobby (which is still not finished). I plan on adding an support/elevator shaft under the triangle portion of the hotel. Im planning on adding a panoramic elevator to the support/elevator shaft.

 

The net portion of this diorama includes adding a golden Buddha to the grounds of the hotel. The grounds of the hotel will have trees, people, Buddha, etc.

UPDATES

 

Ive added a grass mat to the buliding, I think I may have to make it bigger Im not sure though.

 

You can see the Buddha Ive added, I also created a podium for him lol.

 

Just a picture of the building itself, its mostly mirrored but still lots to work on.

Well there isnt much going on with my project. I managed to snap the upper portion of my tower from the base. Im now thinking about locating the tower portion elsewhere. Im think about cutting a hole in the middle of the main bulding and putting the triangle tower portion through that hole.The building hopefully will look like a spear has been thrust into it by the Gods.

                                                                                               

As you can tell I have some lofty goals lol I hope they work out in the end.
